FIVE REA­SONS TO BUY...

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE - TECH SPEC

But­tons ar­ranged to evoke the shape of its V8 en­gine MODEL: Mercedes -AMG GT S PRICE: £110,500 EN­GINE: 4.0litre tur­bocharged petrol V8 POWER: 510hp at 6,250rpm TORQUE: 650Nm at 1,750 - to 4,750rpm TRANS­MIS­SION: rear-wheel drive, seven-speed au­to­matic 0-62MPH: 3.8 sec­onds TOP SPEED: 192mph ECON­OMY: 30.1mpg CO2: 219g/km BODY STYLE: two-door coupé 1 The Audi S1 comes packed with 228bhp (as much power as a Golf GTI Per­for­mance Pack in a car one size smaller) and sprints from 0-62mph in just 5.8 sec­onds, charg­ing hard to a 155mph top speed.

2 This lit­tle pocket rocket was built for fun. There’s plenty of grip from its all-wheel drive sys­tem and a fairly spa­cious boot gives it a cer­tain amount of prac­ti­cal­ity, too.

3 Con­sid­er­ing just how quick it is, the Audi S1 doesn’t ac­tu­ally cost too much to run. Its 40.4mpg fuel econ­omy fig­ure wouldn’t look out of place on a nor­mal fam­ily hatch, while the 162g/km CO2 emis­sions means it’ll cost £180 per year to tax, which isn’t bad given the per­for­mance.

4 Stan­dard xenon lights with striking LED run­ning lamps and a lat­tice­work grille give the S1 a dis­tinc­tive face, while a choice of bold colours – in­clud­ing bright yel­low, red and green hues – means it’ll cer­tainly at­tract at­ten­tion.

5 The S1’s blend of speed, sta­bil­ity and up­mar­ket ap­peal comes at a price, and it starts at £26,225
